Coarsegold CA (Low 41 Mostly Sunny High 75)

We drove Glacier Point Road to look down on the valley that we had just driven thru. We didn't think it was possible but it may have even been more scenic than the valley. We went on a Friday and it was a lot more crowded at the entrance. We cannot believe how crowded it was in May and can only wonder how crowded it must be in July or August.

The scenery along the way was gorgeous.

Here is Half Dome in the distance as we get closer to the end.

We came to Washburn Point.

Viewable from Washburn Point is Vernal Falls, both Upper and Lower.

The highlight of Washburn Point is probably Half Dome (we sure took a lot of photos of Half Dome from a lot of different spots). We liked this view of Half Dome because Vernal Falls is also in the picture.

Washburn Point was where we had lunch. Sitting in our truck eating ham sandwiches with this view of Half Dome and the Falls, doesn't get any better than this.

Then it was off to Glacier Point. Of course there is Half Dome.

Yosemite Falls in the distance.

A neat view of the valley below that we were in a couple of days earlier with Yosemite Falls.

This is one incredibly beautiful National Park.

Till next time,
